I am also excited to announce that I received 2 coupons from the wonderful people of Woodstock Farms to try their products for free and do a product review. What should I try, guys?
I have a few product reviews coming up (and a giveaway!), so stay tuned!
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but it is blisteringly hot down here. Yesterday we had a 105* heat index, and today 107*. But that doesn’t stop me from charging onto the tennis court for a couple hours! No sir-y, I have been sweatin’ up a storm this past couple days.
This summer weather calls for a summer dinner!
Alex’s 10 Minute Burgers
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1-2 Tablespoons Worcester Sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Mix all ingredients together by hand. My burgers are very onion-ey, that’s what makes them good! Roll them into balls about 1.5 inches thick. Then, place them on a pan (I used a cast-iron skillet) and smash them down to patty size. Cook for about 2 minutes each side. I didn’t really count, but I just kept an eye on them to see when the bottoms turned nice and brown. Serve with your favorite condiments! (Mine are pickles, avocado, tomato, spinach, and mustard! I like mine bun-less…oh yeah….)
Healthified Potato Wedges
- 3 or 4 potatoes (or sweet potatoes)
- olive oil spray (or fingers 🙂 )
Preheat oven to 425*. Scrub potatoes thoroughly because we are keeping the skins on. Slice potatoes into wedges. Try to slice evenly so that they will cook evenly. Soak the potatoes in water for 10 minutes so that they will be crunchy on the outside, but soft on the inside. Pat the potatoes dry with a paper towel. Spray the cookie sheet with olive oil (or spread it around with your fingers) and lay the potatoes flat on their sides. Spray with more olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper (and other spices if you wish. garlic, chili powder, rosemary, whateva!) Bake for 10-15 minutes each side or until they look pretty like my picture below.
Yup! So go make some summer food!
I actually think I am breaking my summer food demand tonight and making pancakes and eggs…Oh well! You know how good breakfast tastes for dinner, right?
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
I have a couple, so stick with me, please:
What should I go get with my Woodstock Coupons? What about my One Lucky Duck gift card?
What is your favorite summer meal? I know that in my family, if we have watermelon and corn on the cob, we are happy!
